#22 - The First Dance

The First Dance
Oil on Hardboard
18" x 24"

This painting was a fascinating journey. It is a custom commission that I received via my Etsy store. Maria, the bride, requested a painting of her and her new husband's first dance at their wedding. She wanted a greyscale painting with highlights of magenta. The magenta highlights mimicked the dramatic lighting at their reception. This was a challenge in body proportion and value. The client was a joy to work with. We kept in constant contact throughout the process and she approved photos via email. I was able to quickly make any changes that she requested. to build a shipping box! This piece is going to live in Naples, Italy.
